Event Description

I underwent lasik eye surgery in 2006. Since the surgery, i have suffered from a number of severe complications, and my vision is now permanently damaged. My vision problems, since the surgery, none of which were pre-existing include double vision, halos and starbursts on any light source in a low-light situation, significantly reduced contrast sensitivity - especially in low-light situations-, and chronic headaches from eye strain. The surgery was performed by a dr. Follow-up surgeries were performed on each eye in a failed attempt to correct my problems. After dealing with these issues for two years, i was instructed by the doctor to simply wait for them to clear up, which still hasn't happened -it's now been more than four years since the original surgery-. I finally gave up on trying to convince dr and his staff that i had significant vision problems; they seemed convinced that it was either all in my head or something that would resolve itself eventually.
